Sudu Upadhyay of WMC Action News 5 in Memphis joins the Second Line via the LB’s Meat Market Hotline to break down this weekend’s opener at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The former Newswatch and Ole Miss Spirit alum gives us his insights from the belly of the beast that is Memphis sports media, tells us what he expects from the Rebels on both sides of the ball, and we ultimately wrestle a prediction out of him.

If you like New Orleans-inspired cuisine go see Kelly English and his crew in Memphis at Second Line or Restaurant Iris for some fantastic food. And if you like gambling and more good food, go to the Magnolia House in Biloxi’s Harrah’s Gulf Coast. Blackjack, craps, slots, and Southern cooking—what’s not to like?

Also, when you’re in Oxford, go see Greg and the good folks at LB’s Meat Market, the inaugural sponsor of this here podcast. Celebrate with the best protein for your Ole Miss grilling needs. And be sure to tell him RED CUP SENT YA for exclusive deals and promotions!

When you’re looking to stock the cooler for football season, ask for Old Dominick at your local package store. You’ve been waiting and it’s finally here, Huling Station High Rye Bourbon. Go get it off the shelves before it’s gone. They’re located in downtown Memphis, trace their roots back to Italy, and take pride in providing you a true sip of Memphis.

And also when you’re in the Velvet Ditch, be sure to take a quick trip to Wonderbird Spirits, North Mississippi’s first distillery. It’s an eight minute drive south of Oxford on Old Taylor Road and is the only spot in the Magnolia State for a true grain-to-glass gin experience. And don’t forget to follow them on Instagram!
